You already know, of course, that Vatican II changed, cancelled, abolished, vilified, and wantonly discarded so much that is indispensible — that is to say, intrinsic to — understanding authentic Catholicism. It shred, not just the fabric, but the very identity of what it means to be a Catholic — one faithful to Christ. and to his Holy Bride the Church.
But you knew that, right? Otherwise you would not have landed here.
did you know that in addition
to the devastating changes in the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,
the Sacraments, the Priesthood, Sacramentals, Religious Life, and
Catholic Devotions (to name only a few) — that:
ALSO DISCARDED the TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC BIBLE of 1,557 YEARS —
changing HOLY SCRIPTURE itself to accommodate ECUMENISM!
I will wager that you did not know this (either!).
It did not accord with “modern man’s” sensibilities, or the morbid and unilateral pursuit of ecumenism (the pursuit of man instead of God): it was divisive, for it did not correspond with the myriad Protestant translations of the Bible first subjected to that spurious literary device called “hermeneutics” invented by 18th century German Lutheran theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher (“Father of Modern Liberal Theology”) for whom “Religion is ... above all and essentially an intuition and a feeling”. Does that sound familiar?
Hermeneutics subsequently falsified and corrupted Sacred Scripture, and has remained near and dear to all Modernist Catholic pontiffs following Vatican II. Indeed, we need only recall German Cardinal Ratzinger’s (Benedict XVI’s) repeated insistence on “the hermeneutics of continuity” — of which there is factually none.
Before Vatican II we had only one meticulously examined and authorized translation: Saint Jerome’s — 1,557 years old! Despite its unquestioned and unquestionable pedigree dating to the 4th century, how, it was asked, could it possibly compete with, or be reconciled to — or otherwise come to terms with — the “Post-catholic Conciliar church’s” “ecumenically-the-same-but-separated-brothers’” hermeneutic scholarship which resulted in 63 alternate (and conflicting) versions in English alone?!
After all, who is to say that only the traditional Catholic translation is the correct one? Indeed, Holy Mother Church had only 16 centuries — one thousand, six-hundred years — of authentic Catholic scholarship and commentaries accompanying the sacred text — to say nothing of the endorsement of all the popes, saints, martyrs, and scholars of 2000 years? Such arrogance! Such a lack of ecumenical sensitivity!
Perhaps we have been reading the Bible in Latin too much — and according to Saint Jerome’s unequaled translation — to have missed this monumental effrontery — this brazen submission to Modernism as the sine qua non of ecumenism.
According to one source,
Does that sound strangely familiar? It should. It accords with the Vatican II mantra of Ecumenism — which, perforce, entails Biblical Hermeneutics, so dear to Martin Luther (the acclaimed hero of Pachapapa Francis), John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and the anti-Catholic “Rational Enlightenment” mentality of godless materialists who, in France’s Reign of Terror alone took more than 16,000 lives — to prove that they were both rational and enlightened.
The The Sixto-Clementine Vulgate Bible — or the Douay Rheims Catholic Bible — went into the same Modernist trash pile where nuns’ habits and veils, and where priests’ collars were burned together with the Baltimore Catechism (since Catechesis became non-existent following Vatican II — being potentially divisive and an impediment to Ecumenism), together with rings of perpetual vows — where everything holy was tossed as into a valley called Gehenna, where the smoke ever rises and the fumes are fraught with putrescence.
Didn’t they burn books in Germany, too — and those who burned them rather coincidentally fled to Argentina — fatherland of Pachapapa — after the war?
Why does so much feculence historically flow out of Germany? Especially the nominally Catholic German Church with its vast wealth and its far greater ecumenical correspondent, Lutheranism? This is especially true since Francis’s draconian insistence on localized synodality which abolishes the notion of ecclesial unity! (the famous and oft-cited verse “ut omnes unum sint” — “that they may be one” (Saint John 17.21) — is not to be confused with John Paul II’s eponymous encyclical, “Ut unum sint”, the very first papal encyclical devoted exclusively to Ecumenism — not as the heresy that it is, but to promote it!
We need only appeal to the spectacle of the “Inter-Faith Summit” called by John Paul II at Assisi in 1986 — when
“a bishop of Rome [the pope] would gather together pagan votaries and invite them to perform their idolatrous rites, confounding them with his own” 2
A summit which culminated in sacrilege on October 27, 1986, when,
“Saint” John Paul the Great? ... I think not. Simply another post-Conciliar papal iteration of Modernism soiling the Seat of Peter.
It troubles us that the truth troubles you ...
There are far too many ideologues and far too few Saints in that imposture known as the “Post-Conciliar Church of Vatican II” or “The Church of the New Advent.” .
Catholicism is not an epithet —
as it was to Luther and is to
Francis. It is the sole means to salvation, for it alone is the
Bride and the Body of Christ. It is the incarnation of holiness
on earth. There is nothing holy that is not Catholic — and
nothing Catholic that is not holy.
Trick Question: “Love God and sin boldly.”
Who said this? Francis or Luther?
PS: do not be confused simply because Pachapapa Francis placed a statue of Luther in the Vatican! ...
